I have had a red circular spot, approx 1/2" on

I have had a red circular spot, approx 1/2" on the front of my leg, above, the ankle for several weeks now. No pain, no itching, no swelling, not much of a discernible center. It has a crusty covering. I don't have ticks around and hardly go outside much. After 2 weeks I have started to develop some muscle and joint ache. I assumed at that point to be getting the flu, which I have had for a week now. Don't know what the spot is or if these recent symptoms are related. Any ideas?

I developed a red precise circular rash (50p piece size) at the top of my back last week. The pharmacist advised that this was likely to be Ringworm and I have been using an anti-fungal cream since Saturday. However, since the rashes seem to have spread and are on my underarms back, breasts, tummy. These are different in size and more like blotchy spots. The latest rash today is a straight line on my tummy (approx. 6cm) and is almost speckled with purple/ red little dots and almost looks bruised underneath. None of these are really itchy. Is Ringworm the correct diagnosis?

Hi, I am 22 years old. I recently got disagnosed with Syphillus, Gohnorrea, and Chlymidia, I have been given two rounds of treatment for Syphillus, one more on Friday, and was treated for the Ghonorrea and Chlymidia yesterday. Today I noticed red circular painless spots on the underside of my penis. I have not had any sexual encounter since my diagnosis. Could these be caused by any of the previous illnesses and I had just not noticed? Will they go away once the treatment finishes its work?
